I'm thinking of order the Apogee One because of the great internal mic on it, but I would also love the capability of plugging a guitar into an iPad as well. Is it safe to say the Apogee One covers all the features the Jam has? I know it can't connect to iPads directly, but with an adapter I read it can. If anyone could help confirm that would be wonderful thank you!

    If you're trying to record electric guitar on iPad, JAM is the way to go.  ONE is great, but its really just designed for Mac, not iPad.  Yes, you could connect it with some crazy adapters and it will "sort of work", but you can't beat the simplicity of JAM... plus it's only $99! 


    Other differences

    - JAM is only for connecting electric instruments.  ONE gives you the option of connecting an instrument, microphone, or the internal microphone.

    - ONE has a headphone output (DAC).  When using JAM, you need to use the output of the iPad/Mac

    - JAM can connect directly to EITHER iPad and Mac


    Hope this helps!
